Daily Briefing - June 25, 2020

Senior editor Ash Bennington and managing editor Ed Harrison break down the latest economic data amid a bullish day on Wall Street. They discuss the rising infections in states like Texas, Arizona, and Florida, and they take a data-driven look at the apparent stalling of the jobs recovery and the reversal of the durable goods slowdown. Ash looks at how peoples' marginal propensity to spend is affecting the recovery, while Ed explores whether different asset classes are pricing in different recovery "shapes" (equities pricing in a V-shape, high-yield pricing in a Nike swoosh, and investment grade pricing in a "reverse radical"). In the intro, Nick Correa discusses what's happening in Texas and how the virus spread undetected for several weeks before the US locked down.
